This morning was like any other... crawl out of bed and enjoy a hot cup of coffee as I get the kids up and ready for school. I poured milk over cereal, made lunches, checked for brushed teeth and started a load of laundry. When I dropped Sean off at school, he shouldered his backpack and hopped out... But as I watched him head in, he turned back with a happy wave and gave me the sweetest smile. A smile of love and innocence, of everything being right in his world. And in that moment, I knew everything was right in my world, too. Because I have him. He's mine. He loves his mommy. And I drove away with grateful tears in my eyes.
This family holds a special place in my heart! They're everything a family should be: Warm, loving, kind and fun. Spending the afternoon with them was a true pleasure and a personal reminder to celebrate my marriage, enjoy my children, and count my blessings :)
My baby girl is 13 today. I can't believe I'm the mother of a teenager! Claire is lovely in every possible way. She is the light of our lives and we are so proud of the wonderful girl she is... Incredibly smart, kind, funny & sweet! I'm grateful for every day she continues to want hugs from me :)
